NYCC15: Argonaut Resins’ HugaBugs


Argonaut Resins has a new project that will be making its debut at New York Comic Con 2015. The HugaBugs will be a freebie for little kids that stop by the Argo Booth #402. There will be a very limited amount of these spongy squeezable hand-cast foam bug figurines.


The HugaBugs measure 2-inches tall and are based on the earlier released Mariposa resin figures. They will come in various pastel colors (as can be seen in the photo above). The all new soft Hugabugs have no wings but all of them will glow in the dark.


Argonaut Resins’ Piragua Reveal


Eric Nocella Diaz, of Argonaut Resins, has fully revealed his latest project - Piragua. The little shaved ice in a paper cone resin figure features a translucent ice head and a  a solid, footed base. Eric explains the project below:

Growing up in Spanish Harlem (El Barrio - uptown on the East side of Manhattan) on those hot summers one of my favorite things was getting a Puerto Rican shaved ice treat called a Piragua. They were like Spanish icies that were sold off a makeshift Mom and Pop cart with a huge block of ice and all sorts of awesome syrupy sweet flavors like cherry, grape, lime, strawberry, orange, etc.

The resin Piragua figurine is 5-inches in height and will come in a variety colors with the occasional chase figure thrown in. They will make their debut at New York Comic Con 2015 this October at Booth #402. Information on edition sizes and pricing is yet to be announced. Photos by Deborah Montanez.
